Yellow is Not Mellow

From our last poll "What's your favourite color?" we can see some least favourite colors voted.

One of them is Yellow.

What is it about yellow anyway? (though I didn't vote for the color as well)

Is it because most people would picture a striking sunny yellow for the mentioned color? If so, yes, that color is fatiguing to the eyes. Yet yellow could be adapted in so many shades and ways in home decorating, like what I'm about to share here now.

You can easily put yellow color on the walls, from pale to deep, for an instant perk up. Yellow captures the joy of sunshine and reflects happiness. It’s suitable for kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, where happy color is needed for energizing. Yellow also can feel expansive and welcoming in halls, entries, and small spaces.

If you are still on the fence about the idea of yellow walls, you can paint only 1 wall in the room, make it a color feature wall. Or you can even paint striped pattern on the wall, alternating yellow with other color that you consider as 'save' (e.g. white).

And even when you still don't want to put any yellow on the wall, you can still opt for a saver way to use the color, like on furniture and some decoration objects shown here from IKEA.
